I decided to delay grml-small for a few days. A "light version" of kernel 2.6.12-grml is already part of the grml-small-ISO. I now want to include the new grml-autoconfig framework and therefore I need some more time. Sorry for that, but expect a rocking grml-small. ;-)

A first public version of Kernel 2.6.12-grml is available. It includes support for reiser4, vesafb-tng, squashfs, mppe/mppc and iteraid:
mika@grml ~ % uname -a
The debian-package plus several modules built against 2.6.12-grml are available online.
I'm working on a (better) framework for the grml-kernel (using dpatch+debian/...). Expect to find broken-out (d)patches and some more information on grml.org/kernel-devel/ soon. Feedback and help welcome!

grml in the german linux magazine Posted by Michael Prokop in general at 15:32
AK gave me a hint that grml is part of the german 'Linux-Magazin' (edition 07/05) for people with the DELUG-subscription. Very nice! Now I'll try to get such an edition which contains a grml 0.4 CD. :-)
Quoting the linux-magazine:Service für DELUG-Mitglieder: Linux-Magazin-Monats-CD
Grml 0.4: Die Live-CD enthält 2200 ausgewählte Softwarepakete (entpackt: 2 GByte) für Sysadmins und Fans der Textkonsole. Die Distribution basiert auf Knoppix und Debian, bootet mit ausgeklügelter Hardware-Erkennung, verzichtet aber auf KDE und Gnome und konzentriert sich auf Kommandozeilenwerkzeuge.

Inspired by Marc Haber's posting in de.comp.os.unix.linux.misc I was working on a small-ISO variant of grml in the last few days. The ISO will fit on a business-card-CD. Thanks to Marc for his feedback!
Finally I've a 53MB grml-ISO. I'll do some more testing in the next few days and will put the ISO online at the next weekend (~19th of june) if everything works as intended.
JFYI: I'm working on the usb-stick variant as well, stay tuned. ;-)

grml configuration framework Posted by Michael Prokop in general at 22:37
I put the new grml devel release (grml 0.4-1) online today, as already mentioned it includes mainly some bugfixing, updates and new packages.
What I'm currently working on is a configuration framework. grml 0.5 should provide a well documented and smart way of handling all the configuration stuff. I wrote down what I'm planning to provide with grml 0.5: grml.org/config/ - feedback is - as usual - welcome.
